Cassie Morgan and the Lonely Pine have woven a lush sonic world of delicate, yet deeply affecting melodies. Morgan’s captivating story-songs, sparsely dressed with close harmonies and a patchwork of organic instruments, shine through the warm hiss of tape and the melodic plucking of the guitar on the LP Weathered Hands, Weary Eyes. Though largely folk-derived, the music crosses over into americana, blues, and indie-rock, drawing comparisons to artists including Hope Sandoval, Emmylou Harris, Cat Power, and Gillian Welch.
They were named among the 100 greatest musicians in St. Louis history in 2012 alongside legends like Miles Davis, Tina Turner, and Chuck Berry (St. Louis Magazine) and Best Folk Band in the 2011 Riverfront Times Music Awards. Morgan is a 2009 & 2010 Riverfront Times Music Award winner (Best Female Singer-Songwriter, Best Female Vocalist) and was named Best Folk Artist in the 2009 Riverfront Times Best of St. Louis awards.
Cassie Morgan and the Lonely Pine have had the pleasure of sharing a stage with Mumford and Sons, Rhett Miller, Richard Buckner, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Sarah Jarosz, Night Beds, Samantha Crain, Peter Wolf Crier, Jill Andrews, Pieta Brown, Caroline Smith and the Good Night Sleeps, Alina Simone, and Death Vessel.
